NMSU branding
This year, 25 students presented posters at the Southwest Institute for Health Disparities Research conference. Each NMSU college was represented as well as UTEP and COLEF from El Paso and Cd. Juarez, respectively. The posters were impressive for their relevance to border health, level of collaboration, organization and appearance. The following were judged as the first, second and third place winners.


First Place was awarded to Najah M Al-shanableh for her poster “Predicting the Number of Multiple Chronic Conditions in Arizona.”  Najah is an NMSU interdisciplinary doctoral student in computer science and nursing.
